Can't force delete an instance


We are currently running a Packstack Ocata infrastructure. We do have 3 nodes running on Win2016 datacenter. We're currently using cloudbase's nova, neutron, ceilometer drivers on these nodes.

So far, the deployment is working well. Instance deletion is working fine as well, except for one instance where the image is no longer available / deleted. Therefore, doing a "nova delete" or even a "nova force delete" won't work. The instance stalls in a deletion process; even if we reset the state of the instance to active and try to re-delete/force delete the instance.

Would there be a way to remove the instance ? We've seen some solutions that requires to update some entries in the mysql nova db; but these date back from older version. We wouldn't want to have DB discrepancies.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
